Blue Global Media's recent experimental project, which includes working from home three days a week, impacts their productivity, team morale and various different environmental factors.

Blue Global Media, an online lead generation company specializing in financial services, announces the results of their project, “Work from Home 3 Days a Week.” The project not only impacted the company internally, increasing productivity and work engagement, but made a major impact externally.

Blue Global Media was influenced by recent studies, including those highlighted in the recent book, ‘Time on Our Side. “Released by the New Economics Foundation, a London-based company, the book outlines benefits of shorter workweeks and/or hours and the effect on workers, society and the environment. Blue Global Media used their own take on breaking away from the so-called traditional workweek and began their new project in January of 2014. The company immediately began seeing outcomes.

Blue Global embraced going green by adopting a variety of diverse measures, including, promoting e-signatures, electronic files and recycling. The office furniture and desks are repurposed vintage, including an old fridge where employees can store leftovers from a catered lunch service, which has both reduced waste and helped minimize lunchtime traffic and attendant road pollution.

A natural light, open-air, workspace is used at Blue Global. Having no individual office spaces the company not only has better communication, productivity and morale, but also impacts the environment by cutting down on electricity.

On average an office space utilizes 97 Thousand BTU (British Thermal Units) per square foot. Yearly, this equals almost 1.4 Billion BTU. As an example, 1000 BTU is approx. 293-Watt Hours. Blue Global saves an average of 35 million BTU’s a year from their newly adopted policies and workspace.

Blue Global Media team members report to the office location two days a week only, keeping their cars off the roads the rest of the week. There are three remote employees working out of state from home, reducing carbon emissions in various California cities.

The company uses Terra Pass and is able to calculate their carbon footprint, cutting carbon commissions by up to 60% and along with their other efforts is completely neutral. Each employee driving to and from work release 7,200 Ib. of CO2 into the earth’s atmosphere from transportation emissions. Blue Global Media will save 86,400 Ib. of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year from their reduced driving efforts.

The Scottsdale Airpark based company, has decided to continue their experimental project and make it a permanent part of their company culture. Breaking the norm has proven advantageous; Blue Global Media’s new project results only solidify their progressive, productive and passionate work ethic, which is helping them to live more sustainably to make a positive impact their environment.
